Gender roles - playing kings and queens
Barnaby Bear and Becky use their imaginations to travel back in time and be king and queen of their own castle. They develop a scenario in which Becky is captured and needs rescuing from her captors. Barnaby assumes the stereotypical role of a brave king who rescues his queen. Becky takes some persuading to accept her role as the meek and mild queen who needs him to look after her.
Discuss accepted roles of men and women in the past and which gender takes on which role in the present day. Are they still as defined? What jobs do children want to do when they grow up; what jobs do their parents do?
